Polycom, Inc., the global leader in telepresence, video, and voice communications solutions, today announced that its Executive Briefing Center in Santa Clara, Calif. was awarded the "World Class New Center" award from the Association of Briefing Program Managers (ABPM). The award-winning center is the flagship within a network of Solution Centers around the globe that provide Polycom and its channel partners the ability to demonstrate Polycom telepresence, video and voice communication solutions to customers.

"Briefing centers are becoming more and more compelling and elegant in the way they communicate the corporate story, and the bar for 'world class' is constantly being raised, as it should be," said Roxanne McCreery, president of ABPM. "World Class is beyond excellence, and its designation has profound meaning for those who have achieved it and for those who aspire to it. We are proud to award Polycom with the World Class Center award for what the jurors deemed a 'stunning achievement'."

"The Polycom Executive Briefing Center is designed to immerse customers in the Polycom experience and help them understand how Polycom can help transform their business as a trusted partner," said Michael Swade, vice president of global accounts for Polycom. "The Polycom center features state-of-the-art communication and collaboration capabilities with the latest telepresence, high-definition (HD) video and HD voice solutions available for customers to use. Polycom solutions erase the barriers of distance and the center allows customers to see how it can be applied to solve their specific organizational challenges."

The Polycom Executive Briefing Center in Santa Clara, Calif. features two Polycom RealPresence™ Experience (RPX™) immersive telepresence rooms, multiple room and personal telepresence solutions, as well as partner integration solutions for leading communication platforms like Microsoft OCS, IBM Sametime, Avaya Video Telephony and more. There is an HD Voice™ showcase where customers can experience the future of voice communication that Polycom is delivering today through its industry-leading conference, desktop and wireless phones and its industry partners. There is also an "Office of Future" that demonstrates how the technologies integrate to enable seamless collaboration.

"Integrating telepresence technology into the briefing center experience is a hot topic in the briefing profession," said McCreery. "The current primary application is bringing remote subject matter experts and executives from the host company into the briefing. We are also beginning to hear about briefings being conducted when the customers themselves are remote. There is great anticipation about even more robust possibilities for their application in the future."
